A trend is emerging in which businesses are deprecating ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) - based integrations and replacing them with APIs. What are the drivers? Why are leading enterprises making this shift for their data? There’s a fundamental shift in the qualitative nature of today’s data and an explosion of new sources. Traditionally data was controlled within the enterprise – all of the data that an enterprise gathered were collected when partners and customers interacted with a small number of internal systems.

(See Making the Shift from Big to Broad Data.) When internal enterprise systems were comprised of a handful of core applications, the data produced needed to be concisely specified and optimized for efficiency of storage. Expensive ETL systems were necessary to de-dupe, cleanse and normalize it.  However,... Read more...

This blog post describes how we recently created a native iOS app with a remote data store without ever provisioning a server or writing a line of Objective-C!... Read more...
